New Year’s Eve

We've adapted a few cultural traditions around the world (featuring food that symbolizes luck in the New Year) and brought them to life in our cocktails! Start your year on the right foot by planning a party in which all food and drink is designed to bring good luck to all your guests.

COCKTAILS

Incorporating some of the foods that traditionally bring good luck in the New Year into your cocktail bar is a great way to tie your New Year’s theme into every aspect of your event! Your guests will appreciate the good wishes for the entire year to come.

FOOD

Greens: It's no coincidence that this good-luck food is the color of money. Greens such as kale, collards, and cabbage are traditionally eaten on New Year's Day because of their association with wealth and economic prosperity.

Pomegranate: Long associated with abundance and fertility, pomegranates are eaten in Turkey and other Mediterranean countries for luck in the New Year.

Citrus: When the Chinese celebrate New Year's Day, they often set out bowls of oranges and tangerines to promote prosperity. This tradition developed from a play on words: "tangerine" and "orange" sound much like "luck" and "wealth," respectively, in the Chinese language.

DECOR

When you prepare a menu with some or all of these foods, be sure to share these tidbits with your guests. You could also use some of these as table decorations, for example, beautiful citrus baskets accented with bright green kale leaves will add a touch of whimsy – and, of course, bring all sorts of good luck!
